Three of my four siblings and I raise and LOVE our peonies. We exchange photo texts every day of our new blooms, and we bemoan the fact that the season is just too short. My husband just finished expanding my main planting place by cutting a 5'x14' section of lawn and spreading 55 cubic feet of bagged planting soil. I will move some of the plants that are crowded and add 2 or 3 new ones this fall. About 16 are named because I bought them from a peony grower; the rest are ones I dug from my late mother's expansive peony garden several years ago.
